THE courses offered in extension are, for the most part, intend-
ed primarily for those engaged in teaching. However, all other
qualified persons will be admitted to these classes, since some
courses are more or less definitely planned to meet the needs or
interests of persons outside the teaching group. All courses will
be taught by members of the College Faculty, and will be of college
grade. The credits earned by High or Normal School graduates in
these courses will be counted by Lebanon Valley College towards its
Baccalaureate degrees. A certificate will be issued to persons who
are not graduates of a standard High School or its equivalent, pro-
vided the work is satisfactorily completed.
A fee of $1.00 will be charged for matriculation and registration.
The tuition charge for extension courses will be $6.00 for each
point, a point being a semester hour. For example, the charge for
matriculation and registration in courses leading to eight points
credit would be $49.00'. This is approximately the regular fee for
tuition in the college. Fees for the first term are due and payable
on or before October 12 and for the second term on or before
February 8. Remittances should be made to Lebanon Valley College,
and may be sent by mail to Agent of Finance Committee.
